is a rare located in Korthia.
/way 52,1, 40,9 Consumption
I found this in a cave at 51, 42. It was sucking in rats and getting a stacking buff. At around 40 stacks it walked out, then disappeared and reappeared as a new mob with more health and started sucking in more rats and getting more stacks of the buff. At that point someone came along and we killed it, but I didn't get credit for the Minions of the Cold Dark
Conquering Korthia achievement, I think because it didn't have the rare indicator yet. It may have another transformation where it actually becomes a rare spawn and credits the achievement.
tldr: Wait until it transforms to its final form before engaging.
It will kill
rats nearby and increase level.
WAIT & Don't kill it till it gets Rare transformation
Gains stacks & transforms Elite => Rare => Rare Elite
Only Rare & Rare Elite forms count
I killed him twice in his final form and it didn't count towards the achievement. Anyone know what's up with that?
The fact that people have a star on the minimap, but it still takes MINUTES before you should attack the mob, is just poor design. And that at a point with pretty high traffic. At least with the normal version you don't have a star on the map.
Cool design blizzard, but it don't go so well with the community, they can't wait 1 minute for better loot.
Is there a way to duplicate Drab Gromits? I could have sworn an old toy did that since we have so many things that interact with Critters like the Critter Hand Cannon.
This rare invites griefing. I hope Blizzard changes it to be uninteractible until it's fully grown, because people either don't listen or they are intentionally killing it early to troll.
I am wondering if it's things still being buggy but while yesterday I've seen this rare spawn regularly while I was running around Korthia, today I haven't seen it even once. Or is there some kind of rare rotation?
I have seen loads of people kill it when it reaches the first set of 40 stacks, but I think few people know that it will start charging again after the first 40 stacks. So basically, Rare (40 stacks) => Elite (40 stacks) => Rare Elite = better loot
So just done Consumption again, and at the Elite 40 stacks, it started counting 41...42 - Of course people nuked it, but I would be interested to see if it goes any higher. Like maybe to 80 stacks
I can confirm that Consumption does not go above the 2nd set of 40 stacks.
What if you let the rare elite version reach 40 stacks?
If he is
, you can Kill him, that is his Final Form. 61 is just rare, need to wait for ANOTHER 40 stacks and he will become level 62 Rare Elite version, and be huge and glowing.
This has to be stupidest rare ever made to game , ppl wanna wait and reset this crap over and over again for 10-100 extra research ... literally wasting their own time and other ppl time by waiting till mob is harder to kill for no reward , tilts me so hard everytime.
Level 60 = don't kill. no loot. at 40 stacks, it will reach level 61
Level 61 = don't kill. bad loot. at 40 stacks, it will reach level 62
Level 62 = KILL IT IMMEDIATELY. Best loot. DO NOT WAIT FOR 40 MORE STACKS. NO BENEFIT.
Level 63 = DOES NOT EXIST. DO NOT WAIT FOR 40 STACKS AFTER IT REACHES LEVEL 62. JUST KILL IT. AND DON'T HARASS PEOPLE WHO KILLED IT AS SOON AS IT REACHED LEVEL 62. THEY DID THE RIGHT THING!
Keep the taunt on the panel for this one and evade it.
This rare drops legit good ring for PvP, high versa ratio V>h.
There are so many people out there that do not understand what the stages of Consumption are, so we made a video to show the process of the different stages. (Don't worry, we sped it up so you don't have to wait as long as it actually takes to see the stages.) We also added the time AFTER it becomes a level 62 elite to show there is nothing after it being a 62 elite. So it is good to kill as soon as it hits the 62 rare elite stage!
For the love of all that is holy, if you are new to Korthia, and you see Consumption, do not be like the 2 newbs I saw today, burning him down before he's at 40 stacks (he was barely at 15), even though I messaged them both, telling them to stop and they kept on. you just screwed basically 10-15 other people who know how it works that were sitting there WAITING for the 40 stacks. Don't be like the 2 newbs!
today, august 22, might be the first day in many weeks that i have not seen consumption spawn at all. can anyone confirm if there are days where this rare does not ever show up? up until now, i thought it was up every day.
edit. it seems like this rare is not up again today, august 27.
in case you missed the lore, that is basically the way death works in the shadowlands
the gormlings die, and turn into anime, together with some research they found alive
and an empty grey shell for flavor
happy hunting ~
Blizzard should just rename this rare to "Griefers Welcome", or "For People Who Don't Read What People Are Telling Them In Chat Because They're So Tunnelvisioned That Even A Mole Has Better Vision"
If you're here looking for the cosmetic shoulders, note it
drops on the
(40 stack a second time) and not the
version. This can be seen from the loot tables on wowhead.
